Rihanna to headline Super Bowl half-time show

Published

on

The NFL has revealed that pop icon Rihanna will be the half-time performer at the Super Bowl in Arizona in February.

The nine-time Grammy winner announced the news on Twitter by sharing a picture of an NFL-branded football.

In a press release released on Sunday night, the 34-year-old was referred to as a “generational talent” by the organizers.

According to the NFL, this year’s 14-minute performance attracted more than 120 million viewers, making it one of the most sought-after music events.

Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar were among the all-star lineup. The program was honored with an Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special (Live).

“Rihanna is a once in a generation artist who has been a cultural force throughout her career,” the NFL’s head of Music Seth Dudowsky said.

And Jay-Z, whose Roc Nation entertainment company will help organise the performance, called the star a “woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn”.

“A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment,” he added.

The decision by Rihanna is a significant reversal for the artist, who declined the opportunity to open the concert in 2019 in support of NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

Former San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick hasn’t competed in the league since 2016 as a result of his choice to take a knee during the playing of the national anthem, which helped spark a worldwide movement against racism.

Later, he sued the NFL, claiming that the league’s owners were conspiring to exclude him from the game.

At the time, Rihanna claimed that if she had taken the position, she would have been a “enabler.”

“I just couldn’t be a sell-out,” she told Vogue magazine. “There’s things within that organisation that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”
